Wisdom From the World
“Although certain physical traits may attract initially, in the long run the ability to keep a mate interested is a matter of soul.” – Dr. Alan Loy McGinnis
“Just as a man forgets feelings, a woman forgets her sensual desires and longings. The practicalities of day-to-day survival and living take precedence over the deeper and more sensual needs.” – John Gray, Ph.D.
“Rituals and gestures are terribly important in the sustaining of love. The reason that they count for so much is that they have a cumulative effect. If you are married to a person who has been thinking up little favors and small gestures of affection for years, that becomes a mortar that holds your relationship together when the crises come and rattle your marriage.” – Dr. Alan Loy McGinnis
Wisdom From the Word
“Keep yourselves from sexual promiscuity. Learn to appreciate and give dignity to your body, not abusing it, as is so common among those who know nothing of God…May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together-spirit, soul, and body- and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.” – I Thessalonians 4:3,4; 5:23 (The Message)
“Enjoy the wife you married as a young man! Lovely as an angel, beautiful as a rose- don’t ever quit taking delight in her body. Never take her love for granted!” – Proverbs 5:19 (The Message)
Keep Me Real, Lord!
“Lord, help me never to forget that making a date time in our relationship is not selfish, but rather a way to energize our life and our marriage. Help me to embrace God’s perspective on our sexual relationship as something that is good, in fact in God’s words…”VERY GOOD.” Help me to see our sexual relationship as a gift to cherish and unwrap.” Amen
